First, frontman Jacoby Shaddix switched back to his given name (Coby Dick – not a lawsuit-related thing) and now the band have been forced to change their record label’s title. The formerly New Noize Records, which houses Alien Ant Farm, will now be called El Tonal and is falls under the DreamWorks Records umbrella.

“We had a little copyright battle and lost. We have changed the name to El Tonal. It is not called New Noise anymore,” guitarist Jerry Horton told Australia’s Undercover News.

However, a spokesperson for DreamWorks said the name was changed because the label couldn’t secure a suitable Internet domain name.

The Web address is owned by a marketing company, and a tiny DIY record label resides at New Noise Records in Sweden only adds to the din.

At press time, was available, but the assorted new noises and similarly named labels could get awfully confusing.

In touring news, Papa Roach will rock the Southern Hemisphere when they play New Zealand and Australia as special guests of Red Hot Chili Peppers. The six-date outing wraps at the start of December.

After a little time off for the holidays, P-Roach return to North American stages for a headlining tour with Blindside supporting. Venues have yet to be announced, but dates start January 13 on the West Coast and move east before wrapping in Roach’s hometown of Sacramento, Calif., in April.
